Honestly, at this time it is just a big ditch. There is some curbing that has been installed but they are still prepping the area for the most part.

After seeing it Sunday, I have surmised that they may be taking the barrier walls down to be replaced. This may well be since to my knowledge they have not released detailed schematics of their plans. (possibly winging it)

I am confident that it is going to be quite nice. The neighborhood in which it runs is so eclectic and most properties have already been restored/repurposed as well as the terrific street lighting and landscaping.

Man. That's intense. If all those projects hit it would be 2000 more units according to that article. I'm guess a safe estimate would be 2 to 2.5 people on average living in each unit? Having 4000+ more people living downtown within the next 2-3 years would be fantastic.

I'd like to take them all for their word that each one is going to happen. But I just know that isn't realistic.

I really like what Bristol did on Twentieth Street South. I do not like the Twickenham project in Huntsville at all so I hope there is no carry over in this.
It looks like a government development and does not relate to its surroundings.

But I have seen many of their projects and most are really nice like the one on the old Drennan Buick properties.

New ownership at what was Citiville is a good thing. The owners were developers and perhaps held it too long. Now the focus on retail including food is coming. That is certainly progress.

Has anyone heard anything about when the Highland Ave. tower project is going to start?

Last I read it was going to start at the beginning of April. Still no activity over there. All of the current things going on are nice.... But that project is on a whole other level. It sounds like it will be like nothing else in Birmingham... Except for maybe the Capri building.

Well, likely there are going to be surveyors and the like there before they actually start demolition on the existing structure or turning dirt.

A friend from Temple Beth-El told me that they were going through some loops but nothing to worry about. This friend intends to move there so she is more than interested.

At least today they announced construction for the Venue in June, as I consider it second after Highland and just before the Metropolitan as far as the ones I would like to see make it out of the ground. (as far as the new construction goes)
